POETIC is a non-profit based out of downtown Dallas, serving commercially exploited and trafficked girls. This dedicated team helps survivors earn high school diplomas, find paid internships and provides art therapy and 24-7 support all under one roof. There is also a community closet for young women who are ready to interview and enter the workforce.
As you walk around you will find beautiful pieces of art made by the girls in the program, each tells a different story. One girl who was trafficked became pregnant – but still found the strength to graduate, as shown in her painting. One dreamed of becoming a lawyer one day and created art that conveyed that.
